a campaign worried about, all right in virginia, women talk about the sequester in florida we will talk about medicare in this state, we will talk about this and now this week with it sort of -- the campaign is acknowledging, no, no, no, we got to went larger argument and the states will follow. >> mystified people that they haven't just, you know, trained in like a laser on the economy and what's going wrong there and goes back to when he picked paul ryan to be the vice presidential pick that, you know, a lot of the conservatives in the base were happy that because they thought it is going to be about policy, it is going to be things like remake the entitlement programs but that took, you know, a lot of discussion, people like me in the press write more about those things, they need to get back to the economy. >> you know, i guess go back, what was the secret sauce to clinton? was it a laser-like focus or did he win a larger argument? >> different circumstances with clinton but he -- largely, it was the larger argument, of course, it's the economy stupid and get the kind of programs together
is in trouble, and i think you have to look at the polls and critical swing states, ohio, virginia, florida, all states that anybody needs to win if they're going to win the presidency and see romney behind, what that does is ignite frankly a pretty familiar cycle in politics. when things aren't going well, recriminations within campaigns start. the finger pointing starts, the background leaks start. and the only thing that can schuh thshoo that away is success. they need success. they need a big break in the news. they need to create their own breaks with policy initiatives. they need some polls that show gaining momentum or you'll hear this chorus of criticism. >> it sounds like according to the sources in the piece, mitt romney is a loyal guy. he's standing by stu stevens and perhaps loyalty isn't necessarily a bad thing. my final question to you, given this article in politico, what is the mood? what really is the mood inside the romney campaign? >> well, i think it is very tense. i think it is very -- there is a lot of mutual suspicion within the campaign of different sides. that's never a
tell the story as the campaign enters its final 50 days. president obama heads to florida and virginia, and romney heads once again to florida. we're joined by susan page and dan balz, chief correspondent for the "washington post." susan, we have been all consuming this daily diet of polls especially from the battle ground states. presumably the romney campaign and the obama campaign have been doing the same thing. do they interpret those numbers the same way we have been? >> well, i think that both campaigns see a small bump for president obama coming out of the conventions, although it's going a little narrower. in these three most critical battle ground states -- ohio, florida and virginia -- you do see obama having a slight advantage, a slightly bigger advantage than he had before. i think this is very worrisome to the romney folks and quite encouraging to the obama side. >> ifill: what do the romney people say about all that? >> they say a couple of things. they think that the bounce was overinterpretted that the president got after his convention. late last week they expected the
of polls out that show in battleground states particularly ohio, virginia and florida, romney is falling five, six, seven eight points behind. whereas is ras muse enpolls for those states shows its dead even and overall while some polls show a bounce for obama after the convention, rasmussen shows that that race head-to-head nationwide is dead even and that the bounce was very temporary. dick armey why these polls are so crazy. are the polls biased. is rasmussen the best along with pew and he said it's a different race. completely head-to-head even. >> personally have never been guided by polls but do i think insofar as there's any validity to these polls it goes back to the point you made earlier, governor romney needs to assert himself in a strong confident way as reagan did. i mean it's not -- it's no longer necessary to tell america that president obama is not up to the job. we know that. what he needs to do now is tell america in chapter and verse details how he is up to the job. and he hasn't really taken that step forward. i think some of the changes he's making, especially the ad
battlegrounds of ohio, florida and virginia showing president obama pulling into the lead, the stakes very high for the romney campaign to do something to carve away at the lead. i want to bring in our senior political editor rick klein tonight in washington. and rick, you and inwere talking about "snl" last night, that opening sketch. the actor playing the president acknowledging it's a rough economy, the job market bad, too, but -- >> i'm not worried. not in the least. should be. our campaign has a secret weapon. and that secret weapon is speaking right now in tulsa, oklahoma. >> hello, i'm mitt romney. and i understand the hardships facing ordinary americans. for example, this summer, one of my horses failed to medal at the olympics. so, i know hardship. >> "snl" last night. rick, we've heard those conservative voices in recent days saying that the challenger, in this job climate, ought to be running away with this by now. did they hit on something here? >> reporter: they did. i think this is devastating in a quiet sort of way perception. this likability gap is not going away. and the fact i
at the university of virginia and the national project has done a lot of work on this. i imagine that these the things you have heard are ready. so, to maximize your happiness and make sure that your future as yet only imaginary children turn out really well. you're all going to rush out and get married. obviously people don't get married for this sort of calculated reasons. even if he did decide to get engaged as soon as possible it would be a little harder in the world today than they used to be because the other side of the kind of paradox of marriage and a 21st century is that just at the time when it has become obvious that marriage is in decline. a retreat from marriage, cohabitation, kind of falling in the hills of the divorce revolution in the earlier generation. you know, people say divorce rates have stabilized, but that may be because fewer people are even attempting marriage and the first place. on the one hand this institution is great for people and on the other hand people are retreating from it. it's not just in the marriage itself that we see this crisis in relat
